Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! my only D2 knife is a Kizlyar Supreme Sensei and the other day i noticed some scratches near the tip. At first i was worried it was a fracture because it ran from near the tip to the edge and i can feel it with my finger nail. I sharpened it and the scratches on the edge came out. Is this normal? I have heard allot about d2 being brittle, in which case it would just snap right? I noticed the scratches near the tip after stabbing it into a tree stump to make some feather sticks. I tried the same action again and noticed more scratches. Is that enough to make scratches on D2? Of course I have had other knives in other steels that have scratched but i dont think ive ever been able to feel them catch my finger nail. The scratches arent on the other side Pretty sure the stump is just fir.
